Bugatti developing Veyron Grand Sport Sang Noir edition
If the current list of Bugatti Veyron derivatives isn't confusing enough, the automaker is developing yet another variant to be available to customers in April 2009. The new supercar is an open-top Veyron Grand Sport 'Sang Noir' (French for 'black blood') -- it's essentially an evil-looking unpainted carbon-fiber version of the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport targa. The exposed version will be very limited in production (remember, only 15 Sang Noir models are to be built in coupe form), and likely limited to a top speed slightly below 253 mph. Considering the first Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport went for $3.19 million at auction, we can only imagine where these will be priced.
